    I bought the card, put 57.00 dollars on it for my son, came home, went online and activated it. My son went online to buy something and the card was declined! He tried again and again with the same results. I called and was told that the card was registered under someone else's name and that the money had already been withdrawn!!! I hit the roof!! Gave them an earful!! I called them liars and scammers. I told them that someone there had stolen my money!! I demanded my money back and they said they'd open an investigation and I'd hear from them within 5 business days. I told the guy that I wasn't going away and that I was going to be all over them until I got my money back!!

    Absolutely dreadful account. They keep posting previous charges as current and the vendor has no idea what is going on. Overdrawn or locked my card account at least 5 times due to their system glitch!

      Don't waste your money on a Walmart Money Card or Green Dot card. I purchased a reloadable card, for $500 and when I registered it. It said it was previously registered so I immediately called the customer service which the number on the back of the card can't go to a service representative. Had to Google for a number with customer service, I gave the service representative my details of the problem, was sent an email with a link to upload my receipt and card which they said was never completed, now I have another case number to attempt to resolve this issue. I will never buy another Walmart Money Card.

      Don't do it! I purchased the Walmart money card that is refills. I put $380 on it with my debit card. Zero is the balance and customer service is zero help and tells me Just wait. Customer service desk inside Walmart has nothing to do with the cards.

      ### Walmart MoneyCard Review. I purchased a Walmart MoneyCard for $130 two months ago, expecting a simple activation and use. Unfortunately, this has turned into a frustrating ordeal. **Activation Problems:** Right from the start, I was unable to activate the card. This issue has persisted, and despite numerous attempts, the card remains inactive. **Customer Service Issues:** I've contacted Walmart's customer service multiple times for help. Despite providing extensive proof of purchase—including the original receipt, a printout of the journal, and the details of the Walmart store where the card was purchased—I still haven’t received a refund. Each interaction has been frustrating, with representatives often hanging up on me or refusing to connect me to a supervisor.

      **Lack of Resolution:** Despite filing claims and submitting all necessary documentation, my $130 remains unrecovered. This experience has been a significant inconvenience and financial loss. **Widespread Problem:** I’m not alone in this struggle. Numerous other customers have reported similar issues with Walmart MoneyCards, facing problems with activation and receiving poor customer service. This pattern suggests a broader issue that needs addressing. **Summary:** Based on my experience, I cannot recommend the Walmart MoneyCard. The combination of activation issues, poor customer service, and lack of resolution has led to significant frustration and financial loss. I urge others to consider alternative prepaid card options to avoid encountering the same problems.

      I have had my prepaid Walmart card someone fraudulently access my card to purchase online. Call Walmart was told have to wait until it post. I expecting my direct deposit so I guess they will have full access to my money since Walmart can't do anything for me right now. Closing my account so disappointed. The worst customer service ever. Never ever use again.

      They sold my phone number and email, because since I signed up I have gotten dozens of spam texts, calls and emails. They should unequivocally be prosecuted! No issue with the card itself, but it is definitely not acceptable to sell your information.

      Do not use this card. You can only load 1500 on your card every 30 days from another Walmart card. They charge you 5 dollars to use that card for nothing. They will not help you to load the money. What's the use of having a card that you can't put money on?

      I've been a Walmart MoneyCard holder since 2008. Card has been compromised 2 times in the past 4 years. First time I was issued a different card. April 9th it was completely taken over. They changed my email first, then transferred $500.00 to "Wang Wang at **", changed my address, my pin, and phone number! Greendot then locked my account and sent my dispute and refund claim via email to the hacker. I'm still waiting for a refund check for what was in my account. Don't get this card.
